I just went to a local computer swapmeet and got heaps of them of all sizes including things like spare jumpers in there.

I would try some hardware stores for screws or atleast check with some to see about who in the area would carry them. I have tons of screws I have accumulated from a hand full of custom PC builds I never give the end user these as they won't need them and I might. I would not be susprised to see Newegg sell these as I know at one point CompUSA sold them.

I have a sign outside my shop as I am on the main road that says we recycle computers here. When I get machines in I strip them down for every screw and usable part and recycle the rest. I have an endless supply of screws this way. Many times some people will leave working machines here which I than repair and sell.
